Brian tells me miners from Quebec, would climb this ladder every morning, and descend at the end of the day.
Now that is some work commute. Per Brian they had a wooden helicopter pad cantilevered to the mountain, at the base of this ladder.
last activity here was a helicopter crash, leaving the site, with men, tools and ore, the helicopter crashed and burned.
I believe it was overloaded.
Still trying to find info on this mine.
